My Favourite Ryan Davis moment

“Hey everybody it’s Tuesday!”
I haven’t used my blog on this website in a long time. According to my blog, the last time I wrote something on it was back in 2009 regarding my first impressions about Street Fighter IV. But I figured that this would be a good time to share my favourite Ryan Davis moment.
I’ve been a premium member of the site for a while now, and I’ve been a regular listener of the Giant Bombcast. My favourite Ryan Davis moment involves a particular episode. I can’t remember which one exactly, but it was a while back, and I’m pretty sure Rich Gallup was on it when he was still with 38 studios.
Anyway, they were taking emails from listeners regarding coming up with a term for when you get stuck in a particular moment in a game, take a break from it, come back to it later, and beat the part you were stuck on, on the first try. The term that I had submitted was “Gamer’s Block”, sort of in the same vein as “Writer’s Block”.
Ryan Davis ended up reading my suggestion and saying my name and city on the Bombcast!
The initial reaction was silence lol, but moments later, Ryan commented about how he didn’t think the term was good haha. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but all I remember was that I was listening to the podcast in my cubicle at work trying to quietly contain my excitement!
I know that this doesn’t seem as big a deal as some people may see, but not having met any of the Giant Bomb crew personally, it was pretty exciting for me.
Years later, I still continue to follow Giant Bomb and am forever grateful for the hours of entertainment that Ryan Davis and the rest of the crew have churned out. I’ve already thanked Ryan for his hosting on the various shows and the Bombcast on my Twitter account, but I also want to thank him for all the video game coverage throughout the years and his hard work helping make Giant Bomb the success it is today.
Condolences go out to Ryan’s wife Anna, her family, Ryan’s family, their friends, his fans, and of course, the Giant Bomb crew. RIP Ryan Davis. We love you.
